  • Social networks: their origins, applications and pitfalls 
  • Patient Engagement 2.0: Inspiring trial participation with patient engagement though design, tech, social and advocacy  
  • Developing a data-driven strategy for social media and participation in online communities: Understanding the data and interaction to enable the collation and practical application of big data
  • Join the new influencers: Engaging patient opinion leaders (POL), patient advocacy groups, social networks
  • Patient groups: The key to clinical research and successful clinical trials
  • Measuring the effectiveness and costs of traditional and new media direct-to-patient outreach strategies: What is working? Where is the ROI? 
  • Do-it-Yourself (DIY) Disease Registries: Understanding the power of a pro-active patient community
  • Lessons learned from specific challenges in enrollment planning and retention in various therapeutic areas
  • Plan B:  A-traditional, far-out patient retention strategies that will still pass your legal team’s review
  • It’s 2015! Let’s move beyond the Patient Recruitment Funnel – what works and what doesn’t?
  • Cloud based platforms:  Does increasing communication with your sites result in improved patient enrollment and retention?  Or is it all talk?
